First for those of you who have rewired your cars which company did you go with and are you happy with the product and the instructions it came with, and how may circuits did you go for? Currently looking at a planless direct fit harness with 26 circuits. planning on essentially going modern with the car power windows door locks and such as well as an LS swap way down the line but thought I could do some initial ground work now.

Second radios, I like the look of the retro sound radios withe classic look and an LCD screen I think it fits the look I am going for classic but new. however the reviews for these seem pretty bad there are a lot of comments about the screen being dim and also about it going out in about 8 months to a year any one have any experience with these units? Also looking at Custom Autosound's head units but it seems like you have to look a the screen through the white numbers that are permanently fixed and I know I would find that annoying. Any thoughts? I wouldn't be opposed to a modern single din as long as I could get it to fit and look right in the dash.

Can't speak for the radio because I am wiring a modern one into my car, but my American Autowire harness I have had no problems with and everything is well labeled and easy to understand. I currently have an LS swapped engine, but just so you are aware, the engine module is completely separate from the rest of the wiring. There are a few wires from the harness which you will use, but for the most part it doesn't matter what harness you get, it will all work the same with the stock engine or an LS engine because you need an ECU for an LS engine. Good luck!
